HARVEY mx.16 is a flexible audio and media control matrix and a key component for pa systems and conference systems. It is equipped with 16 analogue audio inputs and outputs as well as a large number of different control interfaces.

The unit has extensive audio processing functions that can be configured in a way that is tailored precisely to the respective application. These settings can also be saved in presets and retrieved at the press of a button so that you can change quickly between different installation options.

Due to the varied control interfaces HARVEY mx.16 can connect to very different devices and act as a central control unit for audio, lighting, and media technology. It converts the data between the interfaces and eliminates the need for additional converters. All established media control systems from Crestron, AMX, and Cue are suitable for controlling HARVEY mx.16 and all the other devices connected to it.

Furthermore, HARVEY mx.16 features the ability to be controlled by modern web browsers. For that purpose the web interface can be generated with a single click and adjusted b y the user without any programming knowledge. As such, the HARVEY mx.16 is the ideal audio and media control matrix for conference rooms, theatres, museums, home cinemas, educational facilities, and multipurpose rooms.
